This new 4,000 hp diesel/electric locomotive weighs over 400,000 pounds and is nearly 75' long. ARR #1825 is a GP7 built on 1951 and acqured by the ARR in 1960. Number 7109 is an Alco S-2 built in 1943 for the US Army, acquired by the ARR in 1955 and retired in 1972. #901 is a 4-6-2 Baldwin Pacific type steam locomotive bought new in 1940 and retired in 1954.
The Alaska Railroad, the perfect prototype to modelâ€¦ The point to point Alaska Railroad runs 450 miles from tidewater to the heart of Alaska, through some ruggedly beautiful scenery. The ARR runs both freight and passenger operations year round. This small, unique railroad has an abundance of modeling opportunities. It runs coal and gravel trains, oil tank trains, TOFC/COFC, general freight and daily passenger trains. Anchorage and Fairbanks boast large yards and equipment repair facilities. Some fantastic bridges, tunnels, mountains, glaciers, canyons, rivers, small towns and a variety of industries, large and small, keep things fascinating along the line. The ARR currently runs a modern EMD fleet of locomotives and had a wonderful roster of steam locomotives, F units and first generation EMD road switchers in its past. Most of these locomotives are currently available in many of the popular scales. Get started modeling the Alaska Railroad today!
